What you missed at #Workfest 2020

A #newcodeofwork event by PeopleStrong & Wheebox

What do an awesome venue, great audience, delicious food make?

An unbelievable event in the form of #Workfest2020.

And it doesn’t stop there.

There were product launches, major updates and interaction zones for guests to not just see but feel.

The mix of business chatters and non-stop activity drove the energy in the ballroom through the roof.

Hosted at the luxurious 5 Star Oberoi Hotel, our guests are led through the grand marble lobby next to a panoramic pond with two huts at the other end.

Don’t lead millennials, let them lead you

In our time societal change is so rapid that the old are holding back and the young are rushing forward. As a result, we are too far apart to hear and understand each other.

Our generations have become disjointed.

The post-WWII generation was dubbed “Baby boomers” as a name for the changes society underwent at the time.

Today we use the term “Millennials” to describe those who reached adulthood at the start of the new millennium.

Labeling groups of people has its risks.

Discovering and Developing Data Scientists

Interview with Jackie Tan, Co-Founder at UpLevel

In a tight labour market like Singapore, recruiting is tough.

Let alone hiring for roles that are extremely hard to fill.

In a survey by the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC), the executive roles most in demand this year were predicted to be in technology, analytics and cybersecurity.

One specific area of talent that is in super hot demand these days are Data Scientists.

As every company start making use of data, the roles are opening up much faster than the schools can teach.
